As a gate guard, your primary responsibility is to check all pool passes and have every patron sign in for the day. A gate guard is not a lifeguard and therefore no pool patrons may be in the pool area unless the lifeguard is present.
In addition to verifying that all patrons have a pool pass and sign in before entering the pool area, a gate guard helps enforce all rules and regulations of the pool and surrounding areas. You must also make sure the pool facility is clean and stocked with supplies necessary for operation.
